Went here on our first night in Bridgton on a recommendation, the food was good and plenty of it. The pub itself is a little tired but full of locals all enjoying the food and drinks, I think it's fair to say this is a local's favorite.

We started with a good Vermont beer, but the food we had for lunch was a bit disappointing considering the tavern's reputation. Chicken was dry and tasteless (under a heat lamp too long?); BBQ was over sauced without much subtlety. The service was efficient and good.

She also didn't check back with us, until time to bring the check. The fish and chips were good. We also ordered the chicken risotto. The risotto was fine, but the chicken was extremely... More

We stopped for lunch on our way through town. Looked like a quaint restaurant, the bar was full of locals and the menu looked extensive. The food was good ,I had a burger and my husband had the seafood chowder and half sandwich. Maybe we just caught it at a bad time but the service was very slow and took... More

The Tavern is a must see when you find yourself in Bridgton, Maine. We have been going there for over 20 years and it is always top notch. The service is great and the food is very tasty and plenty of it. My favorite is the prime rib which is awesome. When they have bread pudding with the hot bourbon... More
